DataBlaster 2 from Bus-Tech, Inc. (fast mainframe to enterprise servers data movement)
Platforms: Solaris, AIX, HP/UX, Windows NT
Price: from $13,000 to $38,000
Fast, effective method for moving data between S/390 mainframes and enterprise servers. The solution provides system and database administrators with the ability to transfer, load, back up and restore gigabytes of data in minutes, rather than hours.

Bus-Tech's DataBlaster 2 is a family of high-performance control units, differentiated only by port configuration, that reach their high throughput levels by emulating industry-standard tape drives at each side of the connection. On the mainframe side, they connect up to two S/390 ESCON (Enterprise Systems Connection) or Bus and Tag channels, providing throughput speeds of up to 32 megabytes per second (MB/s). With no additional software or network switching equipment, DataBlaster 2 results in simple, reliable parallel data transfers.

Rates of transfer in preliminary customer tests have exceeded 40 Gigabytes per hour (single ESCON connection to S/390) with HARBOR File Transfer (HFT) software.
